    Redneck explains sale

    Vikings | McCombs Explains Sale
    Wed, 22 Jun 2005 12:44:41 -0700

    Larry Fitzgerald, of the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder, reports he sat down for an exclusive interview with former Minnesota Vikings owner Red McCombs Thursday, June 9 in San Antonio, Texas. The official sale of the team and the transfer of the money did not take place until June 13. He asked McCombs why he sold the team and McCombs replied, "Well, I just regret that I was not able to find a way to get a new stadium for the fans of Minnesota. They are the greatest fans in the world. They were certainly very kind to my family and I, and very generous in every way, and I could not ask for more. But somehow I could not break through the web that it took to get some attention about a stadium. We would have been owners for another 40 years if we could have gotten a stadium deal done. I just regret that we didn't get it done." McCombs said as of that day the sale had not sunk in and he was still talking to Vikings head coach Mike Tice. In fact, he had just finished a phone conversation with Tice regarding the team's linebackers.

    Sucking up the the Vikes and the Vikes fans now won't make up for the horrible job you did as an owner. I hate you Red and I am glad you are finally gone.

    I never really disliked Red, he didn't spend up to the cap, but neither did any other owners.

    Yeah but he didnt really spend any money at all. And he wanted to the move the team. I hated him and am glad he is gone.

    Yeah, but he was further from the cap than anybody! He didn't even attempt to spend. If we did not sign Winfield, we would've incurred a penalty for being under it.
